CONGRATULATIONS & THANKS TO ALL GKAS
VOLUNTEERS & COMMITTEE!
We should all be proud of the Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) event on February 5, 2016, because never before in our history has NYCDS accomplished so much in one day for the community (East Village, East Harlem and West Harlem), as well as the Society and its membership. We screened and reviewed oral hygiene and healthy eating with over 900 primary school children utilizing movies, crafts and puppets in a festive and fun atmosphere with over 90 volunteers. The day was filled with highlight after highlight, but among the most notable were the extended visit by US Congresswoman Nydia Velasquez to our Houston Street site, and State Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez came to the site on the Upper East Side. Many other dignitaries were unable to attend because of the weather but express appreciation of our program. Kudos to all for such a successful event!
